Wide-base trailer radial

The Greatec R125 wide-base trailer radial lessens rolling resistance and increases payload, the company says. The tire has sidewall ribs to protect its casing, and its design promotes even rib wear. Stress-relief sipes increase tire life. It uses a stone-rejecting platform to prevent trapped stones from pushing into the tread grooves and piercing the belt layer, the company says. The tire is approved for use on SmartWay-certified equipment.

Cargo tracking system

The covert freight tracking service is available to owner-operators hauling high-value freight and sensitive loads. The system uses small, hidden devices and GPS technology to show a constant, in-transit view of a load. The Geo F1, whose magnetic case is shown, and Geo F2 location devices are small enough to be hidden inside freight pallets or beneath the trailer, the company says. The system can track single pallets or full trailer loads.
